Barack Obama will give his most important speech since leaving office next week

Former US President Barack Obama will aim high with his Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johanesburg on July 17th. According to his close adviser and former speechwriter Benjamin J. Rhodes, Obama views this as the most important speech he has given since leaving the White House, one that will set the tone for his post-presidency.

Obama must deliver a more ambitious, activist, and forward-looking address than his eloquent remarks at Mandela’s memorial, in December 2013. That’s because much has changed politically in the five years since then. The world is in a much more precarious place.

Authoritative global indices portray dangerous trends of democratic decline. Principles of tolerance, inclusivity and the rule of law, abiding commitments that defined Mandela’s life, are under assault in other nations, from South Africa the US to Poland.

All he ever did was give speeches and play golf, and get nothing done.

I hope he announces that he and michelle are setting up permanent residence at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens located in cape town, south Africa where they will spend all their time cultivating Mandela's Gold, the beautiful strelitzia reginae hybrid with yellow petals instead of orange ones.

Well you're right. Obama never did have time to separate 2,000 foreign children from their mothers and then have no concrete plan to reunite them.

trump sure did do something there. Could be he made hundreds of young children orphans-- Wards of the state to be in foster care.

That sure is really doing something.

Maybe not as many as Chilean Dictator Pinochet orphaned, but trump still  was doing something.

Poll: Americans consider Barack Obama the greatest president of their lifetimes

That's right. He was the greatest President of our lifetimes to never get anything done, so he was actually the worst. Followed closely behind is Jimmy Carter, who actually looks good by comparison.
